Jim Elliot Christian School is a distinctly Christian learning environment that encourages critical thinking skills within a biblical framework. We believe that learning should be personalized to the fullest extent possible, reflecting the status of each person as a unique “image-bearer” of God. We have designed a long-range plan to identify each student’s individual learning style and consider these learning styles when formulating curricula. Our students are required to complete a solid core curriculum, and the majority of our graduation go on to study at four-year universities.
JECS is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
